Supporting a healthy calcium:magnesium balance
Karuah ChancaPlus™ Herb tea capsules are a partner product to our Karuah Active Magnesium™ since a high blood calcium (CAC score over 1) compromises our absorption of magnesium. Read more below.
However, if you found us searching online for a solution to a very painful situation that might be felt just behind the lower ribs in your back or even a solution to nausea and dry retching for no apparent reason, then 6 capsules every 8 hours is a good idea. You might need to maintain this for up to 3 days but if the pain disappears earlier just drop back to the maintenance serve of 2 capsules a day.
Feel free to contact us for more information.
Drink lots of water too as Karuah ChancaPlus™ Herb tea capsules have a diuretic effect.
This is particularly true if you tend to drink lots of coffee throughout the day or you eat a lot of the food sources of calcium (see below).
Scientific research tells us that calcium salts which include calcium oxalate, calcium urate, calcium phosphate, calcium cholesterol and even the same compound that is in our bones, calcium hydroxyapatite, are commonly deposited in our soft tissues and blood vessels.
Yes. Our arteries are turning into bones when we need flexibility and strength in them, not have then turn into solid pipes.
This is due to our modern diet and it gets worse as we age.
The problem arises because we rely on fewer and fewer food species, on food fragments and almost daily consumption of lots of calcium from pharmaceuticals, bakery preservatives, dairy products, sesame seed products (eg tahini) and high oxalate leafy greens (spinach, silverbeet), miso soup, French fries, sweet potatoes … the list goes on.
Some people even take chemical supplements with calcium in them eg synthetic vitamin D with added calcium ‘cement’. We need to be cutting out sources of calcium, not consuming increasing amounts and eventually dying of a heart attack or blocked organs and ducts.
Calcium granules also get left behind by bacterial infections in, for example, prostate and breast tissue if not all our organs and from way back when we were teenagers. These calculi are the exact sites of rogue cell growths decades later.
Calcium in our food supply is definitely too much of a good thing.
